My favorite .22LR pistol is the out-of-production S&W 422 / 622. They are not pure target guns, but they are a lot of fun to shoot and are very well made. They are very light weight and so they are perfect for younger shooters. After that I like the S&W M&P 22. Same deal; fun, accurate and reliable. I have two of them and they have nothing but awesome.

The most accurate .22LR pistol I have is a Ruger 22/45 MKIII but my wife and kids always go for the 422 / 622 or the M&P 22. They feel the Ruger is too heavy and they don't like the grip.

You could always just buy a Tac Sol .22LR conversion upper for your Glock too. They are a little buggy but a lot of people have and love them.

I own a sig 1911-22 and it has been great so far. Only a few FTF due to lowered powered ammo.

Ruger Mark III with a bull barrel. Most accurate .22 I own or have shot. A Browning Buckmark would be a good choice.

Ruger MK II - III just has a bunch of BS you'll have to remove. (except mag release) (22/45 if polymer fan)

Buckmark also has its fans.

For customization - Ruger is tops

Target Guns - High Std Victor (Hard to find) or SW Model 41. Rugers take some work to shoot w these guns.

Ruger has a new 22 out but I have no experience w it.

Note: SW has nice revolvers n Ruger makes single action revolvers in both 22 n 22 Mag.

The Ruger Single Six is a nicely-balanced western-style single-action that offers the advantage of allowing a beginning shooter to step up to .22 Magnum using the alternate cylinder. I can't speak to the accuracy of the magnum conversion, but the .22LR configuration seems pretty accurate.
